I correct spelling errors in old journals, I know the Lovesong of J. Alfred Prufrock by heart and I've never dyed my hair. I've lived in Spain twice. I'm a kindred spirit, an adventurer, a dreamer, a fighter. I'm loyal, ambitious and hard-working. Most days I feel blessed and when I don't I eat ice cream.
Most nights you can find me playing beach volleyball at the pier, working on poetry, philosophizing with friends, swimming, biking, hot tubbing (which is an important part of my life), painting, listening to live music or teaching myself piano. My favorite musicians are mostly singer-songwriters from the 70's: Joni Mitchell, Simon and Garfunkel, Johnny Cash, and Cat Stevens. I just fell in love with the song Clay Pigeons by Blaze Foley. Have been playing it non-stop.
I'm very active and usually play beach volleyball several times a week. I love being outside, biking and surfing. I pretty much walk or bike everywhere, I rarely use my car. Absolutely love Santa Monica.
I am drawn to men who are playful, intellectual, sensitive, philosophical, funny, and tall. The things that are most important to me in a partnership are chemistry, a shared sense of humor and feeling like I can be myself. I often have find have strong connections with men who have a creative and philosophical side, but that's not a strict rule. Physical affection is also an important part of a relationship for me.
I'm fascinated by neuroscience and physics, so if you're into that stuff, let's dance.
I have learned to be kind to and patient with myself and in doing so I've become more open and compassionate with others; plus, life is more fun that way. I've been learning to trust my intuition rather than basing my actions on arbitrary labels such as good and bad.
My job is more of a calling than a job-- it's an important part of who I am. I'm an individual and couples therapist in private practice. I'm really proud of the work I do and of my wonderful team. I'm self-taught and haven't had any formal training in the subjects of business and marketing and they have become unexpected passions as well.
I see my work with clients as a spiritual practice. As I help guide clients through the most difficult times in their lives, I am challenged to grow, learn about myself, and ferret out my blind spots. No matter how old I am, I know I will always be devoted to the process of growth and I strive to be like my grandmother in that way. She is 91-years-old and she takes Spanish and painting classes, swims every day and is still growing emotionally.
I'm tall (5'10) and have an hourglass figure-- curvy (in the non-euphemistic sense). I prefer tall (the taller the better), lean guys but when I have a strong emotional connection I find myself physically attracted to a wide range of people.
I find I can learn a lot more from a few minutes face to face with someone than by exchanging lots of emails, so I'm always up for a casual meet up sooner than later to see if there's a spark.
